5 solutions to improve your fleet safety

Road safety is influenced both by road conditions and maintenance as well as the drivers’ habits and vehicles’ technical condition. The topic of safe driving and fleet management has become very popular during the past years. In some countries, transportation companies even receive awards about developing their businesses by implementing safe driving and fleet management practices. But how exactly can a company improve its fleet safety? Here are some of the solutions that have helped our clients to do that! 
Dashboards for a convenient overview of your fleet state

Dashboards for a convenient overview of your fleet state

User experience is what makes customers choose one product over another. At Mapon, we strive to make our platform as easy-to-use and understand as possible, and it can only be done by taking into account what our clients have to say. Recently, we’ve got feedback that there is plenty of useful information in our system that offers a very detailed look into the state of the company fleet, but it takes a lot of time just to click through all sections and find all that data. That allowed our team to come up with Dashboards – an entirely new section that will allow you to keep track of the most important information of your fleet.

How to measure and improve fleet efficiency in your company?

When your business grows, your fleet grows along with it. Eventually, it becomes quite a challenge to manage it and ensure high fleet efficiency levels. The more vehicles you have, the harder it is to understand whether it’s enough, too much or too little. This is an issue many private companies and state organisations face today, so we, at Mapon, created a brand new fleet efficiency solution that will help you decide what changes your fleet needs to improve its overall performance. After all, would you want to analyse it all by yourself or rather trust a convenient system?

Vehicle Booking: Save Time and Save Your Fleet Costs
